County Durham Liberal Democrats have announced Dominic Haney as their candidate for the Easington constituency at the next General Election.
Dominic Haney, aged 30, was born and brought up in County Durham. He has a record of action when it comes to campaigning for community change, having first got involved in local politics as chairperson of his local resident’s association aged just 17.
Dominic worked in international trade in the civil service and is worried about the impact Brexit will have on buying and selling goods and services with the EU.
Dominic says “I believe politics can be a force for good, enabling people to achieve positive action in their local area. I’ve worked with Lib Dem campaigners and councillors across the region as I know they make a real difference in their communities”.
“Right now as an EU member we don’t pay customs taxes or duties on goods we buy and sell within the EU. With Boris’s Brexit deal this will all change. There’ll be customs checks and tariffs to pay. It is beggars belief that the PM thinks we will be better off by making it more difficult and more expensive to do business with the EU. Boris’s Brexit will be bad for local people and businesses, and only the Lib Dem’s will stop it”.
The Easington constituency has Seaham and Murton located in the north. Easington, Peterlee and Shotton are in the centre of the constituency, with Blackhall and Castle Eden was to the south.
